Beginning the Meeting
Lindsey Lawrence: This is, we're all here for Nathaniel's first IEP meeting, and he's in Head Start currently, so we're all going to get to know him a little bit better. And, just to let everyone know, there's bathrooms down the hall if you go out to the left, the bathrooms are down there. And today we're here to talk about all the great things that Nathaniel's currently doing at home and at school, and then some of the things that he needs some extra support with.
So, that's why we're all here, and we'll definitely be turning to the staff to hear what he's doing at school, and the people that know him best, his parents, and so we're excited to get all this information from you because the school district just decided to test him for a couple of hours one day, so we're looking forward to getting to know him even more!
